I want to add an iPhone frame around a picture taken from an iPhone in portrait mode (for presentation purposes).

How can I do that? Is there a program that can do it? Or a way to automate such task?

If you're looking for an iPhone app (a fact I missed on my first reading) then this question is off topic for Super User as it's a shopping recommendation. –  ChrisF Aug 6 '12 at 15:31
I do not think this is of topic! I am simply asking for a tool which will allow me to create screenshots including the iPhone frame. –  user13997 Aug 6 '12 at 15:32
You simply want a tool able to attach automatically a mask around a set of pictures which you give it? Which operating system should this program be for? –  Gnoupi Aug 6 '12 at 15:34

I couldn't find a program, but you could always use an image editor of your preference to do it "manually".

Find a picture of an iPhone frame like the following one, open it in your image editor. Paste your screenshot, and adjust it.

There is probably a way to automate such task using some command-line editors (especially when seeing other questions in the image manipulation tag), but I don't know more about it, personally. Maybe another answer will be more helpful in this matter.

Thanks What image editor do you suggest. I only have Preview and iPhoto. –  user13997 Aug 6 '12 at 16:05
@user13997 for free, you can get The Gimp for Mac OS X Good news - free, very powerful, can do this and much much more. Bad news - UI is nothing like normal Mac program UIs, it is a UNIX program and it shows. If you have a scanner, you may have a free version of Photoshop on disk. –  Rich Homolka Aug 6 '12 at 16:16
